Event description
Remote work is here to stay. Marketers and marketing companies need to prepare for a new set of remote-work challenges.

About this event

As remote work becomes the norm for many marketers, what security best practices should we implement? How can companies keep their employees – and their data – safe when outside of company networks? How can freelancers and contract workers ensure they're not the weak link in cybersecurity? And how can marketing teams avoid losing vital communications when everyone is miles apart?

Our panel of experts will discuss how businesses and individuals can protect themselves against new and emerging threats. Topics covered will include:

  • Protecting internal company networks from workers connecting from home computers/devices
  • Remote workers/teams using shared Wi-Fi in collaborative/coworking spaces
  • Staying safe when using public Wi-Fi in cafes, coffee shops, etc.
  • How to access/share sensitive information securely

MEET THE PANELISTS

Vince Gremillion, President/Co-Owner, Restech

Vince Gremillion’s journey as an owner of one of the leading IT service companies started over 30 years ago when he became interested in electronics while at East Jefferson High School. After graduating in 1979, he started taking classes at local trade schools for electronics. His education landed him a job with a local company which sold and repaired point of sale systems.

As he progressed through his career, Vince was exposed to the first series APPLE and MAC computers. He installed networks for MACS and developed proprietary circuits.

One circuit array he developed, made troubleshooting and monitoring terminals nearly fool proof. That idea was put in print, and a Californian medical services company contacted him to build a version that interfaced with NEO NATAL monitors. Vince moved on to work for AMOCO, Tomba Communications and a startup micro-computer company where he effectively solved a problem for the NASA’s facility at Michoud. His innovative and very cost effective idea allowed users in the MIC room to share control of the MAC that drove a projector.

Continuing to dream about running his own business, Vince moved his home office into a small space and then launched Restech over 25 years of steady growth.Today, Restech employs 30 full time employees and has revenues over $4 million annually. Restech has serviced national as well as regional and local accounts.

Vince has put a lot of effort into continuing his education and transforming himself into a more effective business leader and analyst. In 2013, he was awarded the Louisiana Business Person of the Year award by the Small Business Administration. In 2016, he became a Certified Information Systems Security Professional and implements cybersecurity awareness and training for businesses. He is also a GIAC Certified Incident Handler. The GIAC Incident Handler certification validates a practitioner's ability to detect, respond, and resolve computer security incidents using a wide range of essential security skills.
